We only ever made 4 of these stunning limited edition Earth Day 2020 tartan coats.  Each one has a signature earth brown edge on one side of the coat, where we experimented with the fabric in our century old looms to create something truly rare.

These coats come with standard collars and the full sizing details can be found in the dimensions and details tab below.

What It's Made Of

  • Made with 100% finest natural merino wool
  • Spun and dyed in Scotland
  • Woven into tartan fabrics by us at our Highland mill
  • All labels made from hand cut and laser etched Scottish leather

Who It's Made By

  • Made by bad-ass womxn and men of the Scottish Highlands 
  • Proudly preserving century old textile skills and machinery
  • Also proudly disrupting the world of future clothing, we have seen the past and it works!

All of our outerwear items have been designed to have a feature hem line by positioning our drop shoulder points one higher than the other. This creates a cool line of bias, with the garment drop varying from one side to the other. But there is more, you can literally wear this coat one way, then do a 180 flip and they you have switched your collar to become a feature hemline. Depending on the collar type you selected the overall length of the coat varies, its our amazing zero waste design principals at work here! To explain the correlation here’s the maths for this Limited Edition item;

Available with Standard Collar Option Only
Wear Way 1 - Longest drop from shoulder to hem line – 37.5”
Wear Way 1 - Shortest drop from shoulder to hem line – 32.5”
Wear Way 2 - Longest drop from shoulder to hem line – 27.5”
Wear Way 2 - Shortest drop from shoulder to hem line – 19”

• Bust – this coat will fit up to a bust of 40"with a tapered opening, with a smaller bust this opening will reduce at the cross-over

• Shoulder to Shoulder – this coat will fit up to a shoulder to shoulder size of 18"

• Collar Type – the standard collar is 10” in height, basically its like a huge scarf funnel attached to your coat.

• Arm Size – we have allowed for a 4/5” ease on our straight arm sizes, this coat sleeve will fit up to a 18" bicep. The length of the straight arm is 15”, this is from sleeve top to cuff

• Item Finishing – Each Coat has a branded real leather label carrying the mark of the rebelmaker, Prickly Thistle

• Fabric Design - Black Elements, a new limited edition design interpretation of our Elements tartan. We have gone back to black, and grey.... mirroring the 4 shades used in each element tartan we have created this edgy and very rebellious black beauty!

• Weave Design - woven to our unique and in-house created technical shadow twill. Creating an eye catching ribbed affect, our shadow weave adds rebellious body!

• Fabric Repeat – all fabric has been cut by hand from the cloth roll woven at our mill, therefore aspects of the repeat will be unique to each item, which is pretty cool as it makes them all unique!

• Colour Options - Black and dark grey hues

• Fabric Weight Options - Lightweight to wear with a densely woven thread count. This is a truly fine merino wool wonder!

Here we proudly share with you our less than x 1 mark-up that we apply, and how this garment has been costed.

Most brands in the 'fashion' world add multipliers of x 2 for wholesale then add another x 2 for retail. When you buy direct from us its a less than x 1, we use the profits from everything we create to support more fairly paid jobs and push the textile world to be more eco-conscious. But we do a lot more like donating to charities and education bodies. This is what we proudly call our ethical pay it forward mark up.

Fabric Cost £202.95
Labour To Make £94.50
QC, Labelling & Packing £15.00
Overheads (incl insurance, premise costs etc) £62.49
Total Cost To Company £374.94

Time to Make : 4.50hrs
Cut & Pin 0.5hrs

For Cost Per Wear (CPW) we just wanted to share how buying less, paying ethical prices, loving and wearing more is actually really affordable, it’s all about the number of wears!

You wear the item 3 times a week for the next 3 years (remember this piece of outerwear can be worn two ways!), that is 468 wears. The CPW is £535 divided by 468 wears, Cost Per Wear £1.14!
